The global climate is changing rapidly and countries need clear direction on how best to adapt to these changes. Ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) is becoming an increasingly popular strategy, especially in poor countries where dependence on natural resources for lives and livelihoods is high.

This case study presents the potential impact of lower battery and renewable energy costs projections in Chile’s NDC emissions target. The costs for renewable electricity generation and electric vehicles have dropped since the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs) were developed, and future cost projections also decreased as a result.

Two new icebergs have broken off the Grey Glacier in Chile’s Patagonia in recent weeks, amid fears that such ruptures are becoming more frequent, scientists told Reuters.

COQUIMBO, Chile - The U.S. Geological Survey said that the coast of north-central Chile was struck by a powerful magnitude 6.7 earthquake on Saturday night, causing major damage.

Developing nations are now driving the world’s gradual shift towards renewable energy, and India has become one of the leaders of the pack.

This handbook provides practical guidance for planning and implementing community-led ecosystem-based adaptation (EbA) in three vulnerable ecosystems: mountains, drylands and coastal areas. It is intended for project managers, practitioners and technical specialists.

Green roofs offer a series of benefits to buildings and to the urban environment. Their use in dry climates requires optimizing the choice of their components (i.e., vegetation, substrate and drainage layer) for the specific local climatic conditions, in order to minimize irrigations needs while preserving the attributes of the roof. In this study, we calibrated and validated an existing hydrological model—IHMORS—for the simulation of the hydrological performance of green roofs.

Chile has emerged as a world-class destination for solar and wind energy developers, according to the International Energy Agency’s latest review of the country’s energy policies.
